Description: RONE is a distinctive portrait of the world famous street artist. The 360′ film and interactive VR art gallery take the viewer inside Rone’s world. We follow him into the rarely-explored spaces in which he works – an abandoned paper mill, a house set for demolition, a crumbling theatre and more. The VR experience also transports the viewer into a Rone exhibition and inside his studio, giving them a front-row seat to the artistic process behind his epic murals. Most of the murals and buildings in the experience have since been destroyed. Through RONE you can now experience these lost works.
Review: For those who don’t know who ‘RONE’ is, he is a very respected artist and musical artist. His work has been seen the world over, essential those he paints in abandoned walls and then destroys himself. For me personally this app was all I had hoped for. It’s not just a celebration of the art, but also I learnt a lot more about the man himself. While this is not going to be for everyone, anyone who knows who he is should enjoy this interactive app. Heck, even the 360 video quality was good!
